Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

How is Trump administration crafting sanctions so as not to adversely impact US refiners?

February 20, 2018 (22:10 mins)



Meghan Gordon and Brian Scheid

The Trump administration is considering sanctions on Venezuelan oil exports, but is worried they could bankrupt a refinery along the US Gulf Coast, a top energy adviser to President Donald Trump tells Platts Capitol Crude.

On this week’s podcast, George David Banks, who stepped down as White House Special Assistant at the National Economic Council and National Security Council last week, talks about Venezuela oil sector sanctions, President Trump’s decision to leave the Paris climate change agreement, the future of the Iran nuclear deal, and the Trump administration’s evolving relationship with Saudi Arabia and OPEC. Banks left his White House position last week after he was denied a permanent security clearance due to past marijuana use. This is the first in a two-part podcast.
